All my childhood, my mother, like any other mother, was always beaming with endless life lessons and never ending preaches on how to live life and how not to. And like any other normal child, I was never interested !
All through these years, when I am a grown up married some one in her thirties, I know now how much I cherish those moments of frowning in my childhood when I was being preached over something at the dining table and when I wanted to eat the food right in front of me, but I couldn’t because my mum was telling me – how careless I can get with my life !
Life isn’t about the choices we make, but more about the ones that we don’t. Those years of childhood, I always dreaded to be an adult and always imagined about how I am going to preach others in my life once I am there. And now, as double an adult, I want someone to tell me that there is a way to go back to your childhood days and that you can always be in that life for the rest of your life.
No, I am not talking about my childhood here, neither am I talking about the life lessons that my Mom has never been out of, even today!@
All I wish to put across is, life isn’t about asking what you want always. It definitely isn’t !! It is always about, what you didn’t ask for !! Trust me on that !
The time when we stop asking GOD for things to happen our way, life really amazes you beautifully. The more we ask for things to happen His way, the more we realize what we have been missing for so long.
My prayers revolve more around the gratitude that I wish to express to Almighty for all the things that happened in my life the way they did, but most importantly, for all those things that did not happen the way they did not or the way I asked them to happen. I would have lived (maybe) even then, but perhaps I may not have had the wisdom of knowing this nectar of life and to acknowledge the way it works.
And no, my life is not perfect ! I am a confused soul, trying to find answers to many unattended questions, trying to seek balance in her married life, making enormous efforts to get in the best of health – and still trying to follow the endless life lessons that her Mom is giving her till now 🙂
Every time I broke, got rejected in life, looked down upon my capabilities and every little time I was hated for the reasons best known to God, I emerged with more gratitude, strong enough to tell me that it isn’t the end of world and it doesn’t stops here. I am not someone famous and neither am I preaching to lead a perfect life – just another soul trying to put in words how grateful she is for this life and hoping to be never without hope in life ! 🙂
Well, all I wish to put across to you my dear diary (and to all the beautiful souls reading it perhaps) is – putting your hands together in a prayer position and just saying – “Thank you God for just everything !” is all you need to do, for you do not know what it would have been if it was the way you asked for, otherwise !
“Thank you God for all you do always !!”
Keep shining and spreading gratitude!
